M. G. M., Spain

May 28, 2014

After two and a half years working for the same company, facing up to extreme situations that drained me of strength and weakened my Faith, my company made me redundant in December 2013. My whole world came crashing down. I had to go back to my home town because I couldn’t afford to live elsewhere, leaving behind the life I’d built up with all the special people who were part of it. Two weeks ago I saw that things just weren’t working out. I was having difficulty even getting my driving license, and everything was a mess.

Finding a better-paid job

J. Q., Mexico

May 27, 2014

I first heard of St Josemaria a year ago. In March 2013 I began to read The Way, and was amazed at this book and its message. I began watching videos of St Josemaria, and felt his closeness more and more. I prayed to him regularly, and could feel his help every day: I prayed to him for my family and a project I undertook, which did not turn out well. However, I never became discouraged, because I knew that something would come along later. I trusted fully in God and, as St Josemaria said, “Omnia in Bonum!” Everything will turn out for the best! Not having any means of support I found a temporary job which helped a lot, but I continued looking for something better.

St. Josemaria’s picture

M. C. P., Spain

May 19, 2014

I finally made up my mind to write this down. To summarize the story of me and St. Josemaria: we have lived in Alcorcon for the last 14 years. 9 years ago I met a friend who is a Supernumerary. I didn’t know the Work before. There’s no church near where we live, and by God’s grace a new church dedicated to St. Josemaria is now about to be built. Having given that summary, I want to say that my 6-year-old daughter prayed before a picture of St Josemaria for me to get a job. This was on December 26, 2013. On January 5 this year, I got a call to join a working group. I am happy and so is my whole family. I started work on January 9, St. Josemaria’s birthday. I am very grateful. Thank you, St. Josemaria!

An excellent job

V., Costa Rica

May 19, 2014

I would like to tell people that through the intercession of Our Blessed Lady and St Josemaria Escriva, I got an excellent job when I had just finished praying the novena. It’s unbelievable, because I’m 54 and have been jobless for some time. I had to keep working to support my children through their studies. I have known about St Josemaria ever since I was young, so I appealed to him and he helped me. I’m so grateful to God for enabling me to know Opus Dei.

Money problems

T. G., Honduras

May 19, 2014

At home we were having a lot of money problems because my sister got a scholarship to do her master’s in Japan and my nephew had to move outside our town to practice. This led my mother to apply for her pension, but the payments were held up. We waited for a year with no news of the pension and thought all was lost, but Saint Josemaria interceded for us, and my mother received the payment just when we least expected it.

Thank you so much St Josemaría for giving me my dream job. Thank you for helping me to get the news of my new job at the right time. I know it was possible because of you and my mother Mary. St Josemaría, I really wish to be a permanent employee in this company after 3 months probation. Please help me to get through it successfully.

Two novenas for work

M. E. B., Argentina

April 28, 2014

My daughter couldn’t get her finances straightened out. She had been like that for nearly 27 months. After doing two Novenas for Work she found a really good job. Thank you, St Josemaria, for helping my daughter at such a difficult time.

St Josemaria has been with me

J. R., USA

April 28, 2014

In November 2013 I was fired from my job of 9 years with no explanation given. It was a very painful experience for me as it involved people whom I trusted and loved very much. For weeks I was in complete shock. Then for months I was just so sad and scared not just because I lost my livelihood (I am single) but all my friends who were like family in an instant.

Eight months

J. F. L., Mexico

April 22, 2014

I would like to give thanks for favors granted through St. Josemaria’s intercession. I was looking for a job for eight months, then I did the Novena for Work and kept praying it, because I had spent several years doing very badly-paid jobs. After constant, trusting prayer I got a good job, and bless God for it every day, because thanks to that I am able to support my family. Thank you!

Before I finished the novena

L. W., USA

April 22, 2014

I did the Novena for Work and before I finished it my nephew got a job. We are thanking Saint Josemaria Escriva. Now my sister and her son are full of gratitude because I sent them the novena with the prayer to Saint Josemaria. Thank-you, God!

A healthy grandson

S. H. A., Mexico

April 22, 2014

I give endless thanks to Saint Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer for hearing my prayers once again and sending me a wonderful healthy grandson. I had been praying for this for a long time. Fill him with God’s blessings, Saint Josemaria, look after him and protect him. A thousand thanks!

A prayer-card by the steering-wheel

V., Spain

April 9, 2014

I run a pre-cooked meals business for caterers. Winter sales are always bad as many places close down outside the tourist season. One month ago I had no money for fresh supplies. I could not even get the transport agency to collect a consignment, because I couldn’t pay them. I prayed to St. Josemaria to help me over this bad time. No sooner said than done. A client called asking me to come and collect payment for a small outstanding bill. That gave me the money to pay for the consignment, but it was Friday morning and the supplier was 300 km away. I needed to use those supplies on Saturday so that I could get the products to clients on time.

Speak to you soon about more favors!

M. D., France

April 2, 2014

I thought I had cancer of the face, as this was what the doctors gave me to understand when I came out of radiology. I prayed hard to Saint Josemaria that the biopsy they took of the nodule would be OK. Two weeks later I got the result: it was a benign cyst. Thank-you, Saint Josemaria, and speak to you soon about more favors!

The Car Mechanics

A. C., Spain

April 1, 2014

I’ve grown up knowing and relating to St Josemaria, because at home, my parents said the prayer-card to the Servant of God (as he then was) Josemaria Escriva every evening.

No trace of the disease

V. V., Croatia

March 27, 2014

In January this year my father was diagnosed with metastasis in the liver and arm; the doctors told us that the prognosis was very poor. All that time we kept praying the Rosary and did the Novena for the Sick with the prayer to St Josemaria.
